The first few years in your new home feel like heaven. Everything looks so sleek and shiny, but after some time you start to discover some quirks. Most are nothing to fret about, but there are some signs that pop up that shouldn't be overlooked, such as electrical glitches in the home. Not every electrical problem is dire, but as your home electrical system may pose a high risk of fire and severe damage to life and properties, you should be cautious.

Circuit Breaker Issues

The job of the circuit breaker is to cut off the flow of electricity to a part of the home when the circuit gets overloaded. It’s a crucial part of maintaining the safety of your home’s electrical system. This level of importance makes it highly critical that you call for a professional electrician if it seems like the panel is faulty. In a situation where the circuits in the breaker panel fail to reset or continuously trip after being reset, then it’s a clear sign that something is not right with your home electrical system: don't hesitate to call for a repair.

Flickering Lights

This is usually a sign that there might be a short circuit in your home. However, if only a single light is flickering, it might be an issue with the bulb. Unplug it and check if it will flicker when plugged into another outlet. If you notice more than one light or all the lights are flickering, call an electrician to inspect the system. Lights flickering shouldn't be neglected because short circuits in the walls may spark house fires. Be sure to have your wiring inspected often and fixed, should any issues arise.

Burning Smell

This one is pretty obvious, but many homeowners assume the smell is related to something else. Slices of bread trapped in the toaster or a dish left in the oven for too long can cause a burning smell. However, if you still perceive the smell when you are not cooking or using any kitchen appliances, your electrical system may be faulty. Burning smells can also be a result of loose connections or current flowing through deteriorating plugs, switches and cords. Call an electrician whenever you catch a burning smell in your home that's not related to cooked or cooking food.

Whenever you see any spark, catch a non-food related burning smell or see your lights flickering, contact an electrician immediately. Don’t have an electrician you trust? Your real estate professional will have connections to the best professionals in your area. Use them as your top resource.

Moving into a new home can often be a frantic, exhausting task. Matters are made worse if the house you are moving into wasn’t cleaned thoroughly after the previous movers left.

 However, the best time to clean a house is before you move in. This is due to the fact that cleaning shelves is easier before they’ve been filled, and vacuuming carpets is simpler if the house doesn’t yet have any furniture.

 So, in this article we’re going to show you the best way to clean your new home before you move in to avoid having to move objects around once you’ve brought them inside.

 Before moving day

 The idea moment to clean your new home is before the moving truck arrives. If possible, pick a day after the previous owners have moved out that is close to your move-in date. Bring all of your cleaning supplies with you, including cloths, towels, a duster, vacuum, hardwood floor polish, glass cleaner, bathroom cleaner, and so on.

It might be tempting to just start scrubbing as soon as you’re inside, but first take a moment to walk through the house and make a list of all the cleaning tasks you would like to accomplish before moving in.

Not only will your list help you determine how long you’ll need to clean, but it will also give some organization to your day and keep you on track.

On or after moving day

You don’t always have the luxury of being able to clean your new home beforehand. If you’re moving across states or are on a tight move-in/move-out schedule, you might have to clean your house as you move in.

In this case, the best solution is to organize your boxes and furniture by room. Then, when moving them inside, put them in the corner of a room in a neat pile. This will leave access to most of the room so that you can clean before putting things away.

Make sure you and your family are on the same page in terms of organizing items on moving day. If you have family members who start unpacking boxes, let them know they could be more helpful by picking up a duster or cleaning some windows rather than putting items in their future places.

Room by room cleaning

There are some rooms in your house that require special attention. Let’s start with the kitchen.

When it comes to cleaning your appliances (refrigerator, oven, microwave, etc.), it’s a good idea to spray on some degreaser or baking soda/vinegar solutions in advance to let them soak and loosen up any debris before you start scrubbing them. Soaking them all at once will help you save time cleaning.

The bathroom poses a challenge when moving in for two reasons. Since bathrooms tend to be small and crowded, it can be hard to work inside of them if there are boxes in the way. To avoid this, stack all of your bathroom items outside in the hallway or in the bathroom closet while you clean.
